This is a question for a motor mechanic not a lawyer

Good Morning

Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I am a fully skilled technician with over thirty five years in the trade, hopefully I can help.

The settings are for the VH inlet .003" Exhaust .006"

The clearance is measured between the top of the tappet head and the end of the valve stem.

I hope this answers your question but do please feel free to ask any further details by replying to this thread.

Many Thanks
